No issue with suspension and R180 hubs. You will need either dog bone adapters for your brakes or 2pot/Brembo calipers. Hopefully you have the Brembo brake package too.

Well at a standstill with my conversion atm what was to b was not to b with a purchase of brembos on gumtree just gave a fraudster spending money for Christmas and then I was to put the clutch n flywheel on that I had got with the conversion kit only to find it had gouges n looks like it had done 300000 not what they said it had done 108000. So with all the time on hand the whole underbody has been deadend and painted a most of the parts underneath so have the r180 diff Installed with the super pro bushes and super pro outrigger supplement bushes so at a standstill atm with it all try to upload pics when I figure it out keep you posted on progress all n if it's to good to be true it probably is

You're the second member to fall for that gumtree Brembo scam in the past 6 months. Bastards :(
Every car coming out of Japan supposedly has 75-110k km. Seems that fraud has been institutionalised in their wrecking industry.

It could well have done that many KMs. Trying not to be racist. But sometimes japanese drivers have a real hard time with clutch operation. Ride the hell out of it at every intersection etc. And there is alot of traffic congestion aswell. So possibly alot of stop start clutch riding.

I have read that you can run the 5 speed flywheel clutch set up as this might b the last resort anyone used that as i have a less than 10000 ks old hd clutch well its I'm 100 x times better nic anyway . Having trouble uploading pix but some might recall my ride it was a oz foz member garys pimpgt should've got the plates with it at the time

Yep you can use 5spd gear, just make sure you use the 5spd starter with it.
